Just an idea...I wondered if maybe his being an inpatient doctor has some bearing on this? If he doesn't normally do psychotherapy, could there be a number of concepts that he's missing, here? Once a T has been in a psychotherapy practice for awhile, they would kind of have an idea as to which behaviors cause anxiety/anger/discomfort in their patients...but if his only experience is as an inpatient doctor, his patients' expectations of him might be completely different. Still, there is no good excuse for chronic lateness, let alone not showing up at all! I don't blame you a bit for wanting an apology; and I also think Dinah's advice (better off with or without the relationship) is excellent.
I'll be really interested to hear what happens.
